JOHANNESBURG - Czech businessman Radovan Krejcir's legal tussle with the executors of strip club king Lolly Jackson's estate is due to go back to the courts on Tuesday.

A Czech company and Krejcir's mother have filed papers with the South Gauteng High Court to claim US$1 million from the estate.

Jackson was killed in an apparent hit in 2010.

Krejcir said he did not personally file the claim against Jackson's estate, but rather it was a company affiliated to his mother.

According to court documents, Jackson borrowed money from the company and signed an acknowledgment of debt form promising to pay the company by February 2012.

But the estate believes the document was a forgery and part of a sham money laundering scheme involving Jackson and Krejcir.

The Hawks are investigating the claim which is alleged to be fraudulent.

The matter was set to be heard on Tuesday, but it is understood the case will be postponed.

Krejcir is involved in a legal battle to fend off attempts by the Czech government to extradite him, and has applied for refugee status in South Africa.

He was also accused of insurance fraud, but charges were withdrawn in April because of apparent overlaps with his High Court cases.
